Script Alemannic and Early Caroline Minuscule
Date VIII–IX (780 - 820)
Origin and Provenance

Written presumably at Reichenau and certainly in the Lake Constance region, to judge by the script. The familiar ex-libris 'liber augie maioris' (saec. XV) stands on fol. 1. Given by the historian Christian Urstisius (†1588) to Gotfrid von Ramingen in 1584 (cf. fol. 1). It bore the number 252 in the Ambras collection, which was incorporated in the Vienna Palatine Library in 1665.

Script Commentary

Script, by several hands, is partly minuscule of the broad, roundish Alemannic type, partly early Caroline minuscule with both open a and a, d and occasionally ; z is unusually broad; the nꞇ ligature (even in mid-word) is frequent in one hand, also ri; ti ligature occurs for soft ti.
